The appearance of the English translation of the book on cybernetics makes the author feel additional responsibility. This is because literature on cyberne­ tics written in this language is quite voluminous. It contains books by renowned authorities on the subject such as N. Wiener, W. R. Ashby, G. Shannon, G. Wal­ter, and numerous popular-science books, to name the works of J. Murphy, D. Fink, A. M. Andrew, A. Cote as the most noteworthy. And still the author does not hesitate to present his...

Fundamental Laws of Mechanics  was first published in English by Mir in 1980. Currently there is 2002 reprint still in stock from CBS Publishers. The objective of this book is to draw the readers’ attention to the  basic  laws of mechanics, that is, to the laws of motion and to laws of conservation of energy, momentum and angular momentum, as well as to show  how  these laws are to be applied in solving various scientific problems. At the same time author has excluded all things of minor...

Then use the formulas expressing these laws to solve the problem in symbols, and finally substitute the numerical data in one system of units. This collection of problems is based on the International System of Units preferred today in all the fields of' science, engineering and economy. Other units can be converted to 51 units with the aid of the relevant tables given in this book. Each section is preceded...

A Selection of Problems in the Theory of Numbers focuses on mathematical problems within the boundaries of geometry and arithmetic, including an introduction to prime numbers. This book discusses the conjecture of Goldbach; hypothesis of Gilbreath; decomposition of a natural number into prime factors; simple theorem of Fermat; and Lagrange's theorem. The decomposition of a prime number into the sum of two squares; quadratic residues; Mersenne numbers; solution of equations in prime numbers; and...

This book has developed from courses of lectures given by the author over a period of years to the students of the Moscow PhysicoTechnical Institute. It is intended for the students having basic knowledge of mathematical analysis, algebra and the theory of ordinary differential equations to the extent of a university course. Except Chapter I, where some general questions regarding partial differential equations have been examined, the material has been arranged so as to correspond to the basic...

The book provides an overview of various aspects of engineering mechanics. The first part  (chapters 1 to 14) covers theoretical aspects of statics, kinematics and dynamics required for the later sections. The second part covers theory of machines including transmission mechanisms and connections. It also covers fundamental concepts of strain including strength of materials.

This Short Course o f Theoretical Mechanics is designed for students of higher and secondary technical schools. It treats of the basic methods of theoretical mechanics and spheres of their application along with some to­ pics which are of such importance todays that no course of mechanics, even a short one, can neglect them altogether. In preparing the original Russian edition for translation the text has be­ en substantially revised, with additions, changes and corrections in practi­ cally...

This set of four books of problems is based on a translation of a Russian collection which has been in use by students in physics at Moscow State University and the Moscow Physico-Technical In­stitute for a number of years. Where appropriate, answers and solutions to the problems are given in the second part of each volume. During the course of the translation of these volumes, the authors provided a large list of amendments and additions to their Russian text and these have all been...

The late Alexander J. Khinchin was born in Russia in 1894. One of the founders of the Soviet school of probability theory, Khinchin was made a full professor at Moscow University in 1922 and held that position until his death. His teaching skill is discernible in the clear and straightforward presentation of his subject. Designed for use as an expository text in the university curriculum, the book is basically of an elementary nature, the author confining his attention to con­ tinued fractions...

This book is a modern introduction to the calculus of variations and certain of its ramifications, and I trust that its fresh and lively point of view will serve to make it a welcome addition to the English-language literature on the subject. The present edition is rather different from the Russian original. With the authors’ consent, I have given free rein to the tendency of any mathematically educated translator to assume the functions of annotator and stylist.  The problems appearing at...

This book was planned as an aid to students preparing for an entrance examination in physics for admission to an engineering institute. It has the form of a dialogue between the author (the Teacher:) and an inquisitive reader (the Student:). This is exceptionally convenient for analysing common errors made by students in entrance examinations, for reviewing different methods of solving the same problems and for discussing difficult questions of physical theory.

It contains just enough in­ formation to continue with a wide variety of engineering disciplines. It covers analytic geometry and linear algebra, differential and integral cal­ culus for functions of one and more variables, vector analysis, numerical and functional series (including Fourier series), ordinary differential equa­ tions, functions of a complex variable, Laplace and...

This compact volume equips the reader with all the facts and principles essential to a fundamental understanding of the theory of probability. It is an introduction, no more: throughout the book the authors discuss the theory of probability for situations having only a finite number of possibilities, and the mathematics employed is held to the elementary level. But within its purposeiy restricted range it is extremely thorough, well organized, and absolutely authoritative. It is the only...

The whole book is presented as a relatively free-flowing dialogue between the AUTHOR and the READER. From one discussion to another the AUTHOR will lead the inquisitive and receptive READER to different notions, ideas, and theorems of calculus, emphasizing especially complicated or delicate aspects, stressing the inner logic of proofs, and attracting the reader's attention to special points. I hope that this form of presentation will help a reader of the book in learning new definitions such as...
